Washington Parish Sheriff Randy Seal is asking for the public’s help to identify the burglar or burglars who recently stole more than $25,000 worth of tractors and other equipment from Bateman’s Diesel on Louisiana Highway 25 south of Franklinton.

Any person who has information on this burglary is asked to call the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office at 985-839-3434. Callers may remain anonymous.

“Let’s catch these thieves,” Seal said. “If they will steal from someone else, they will steal from you. There is only one place for thieves to spend the holidays, and that is inside the Washington Parish Jail.”
